Food that Offends Me

When I was a child, I used to be a very picky eater. I just can't comprehend eating rice every day. They always tasted dull to me.That's because I put the side dishes on the side instead of onto the pile of rice like a normal Malaysian would do.

Fast forward to several years, I'm less picky towards food. I sometimes see food as a source of energy/chore instead of a thing you enjoy in life. Like I can't tell any difference between any spaghetti bolognese I've ever tasted. Therefore, I don't have a favourite pasta dish.

It's a well-known fact that I don't eat vegetables nor fruits. I'm a living nightmare for all those health-conscious people out there. Like this might affect me 20 years later but YOLO and life is too short to not enjoy junk food.

So, recently on Hari Raya Haji, we went to visit one of our relative's house and they were serving kuih koci, a traditional Malay dessert. Kuih Koci held a special place in my heart because I remember I once helped my late grandmother made this kuih. It was one of her specialty.

Anyway, since my aunt made this kuih koci, I thought it would taste exactly like my childhood.
I was wrong.
It tasted nothing like a normal kuih koci. What is this bullshit??
I anticipated so much from this kuih and it disappointed me.

I felt so attacked right now. It tasted durian!
You don't get how betrayed I felt when I tasted the strong durian taste and its' stench instead of the sweet, savory heavenly  of kuih koci.

The thing is I eat durian but rarely. Like once in 3 years.

So, yeah. I felt so attacked and I'm pretty sure it ruined my Raya Haji for the rest of the day.
So much for bringing back childhood memories.


Another time a food offended me was the time I ate Secret Recipe's Red Velvet Cake. Before this awful experience that is SR's horrible red velvet cake, I loved red velvet cakes. It was my favourite cake and the only cake I liked to eat.

That's something coming from someone who doesn't like dessert and sweet things.

I don't know what were they thinking when they made this monstrosity. Who thought it was a good idea to put slices of peach between the cake?!

This is a disgrace to all the good red velvet cakes out there. You don't know how offended I felt eating this treacherous thing. Like how could you destroy my favourite dessert??

After having a taste of that cake, I don't think I can ever forget the bad taste it left in my mouth. Now, I rarely eat red velvet cake and Secret Recipe is to blame.


Don't even get me started on raisins. Those little shits think they can just hide in all the good desserts and pretend to be something better. Something better like chocolate chips. I don't know how many times I feel offended by the mere presence of raisins in my mouth.
THE DECEIT!
